TJAŠA IRIS (b. 1968)
A Slovenian artist who left Slovenia at age 18 to go to study to Florence, Itay, England and The Netherlands. After that she lived for many years in Venice, Italy as well as Paris, California, Morocco, Croatia, Tuscany and Provence until landing in Hong Kong in 2009. Since then she made South East Asia her home, currently having her studio in Kuala Lumpur.
At this moment she reached a sweet spot where the art historians and art critics in Europe say that her work belongs to Asia, while the art historians and art critics from Asia say that her work belongs to Europe. A clear sign of her creating a new powerful and unique aesthetics.
